Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  "I am not a Lutheran, can I still worship at Calvary?"

 

A:  Absolutely!  Anyone is welcome at Calvary, even if you never have gone to church we welcome you to unite with Calvary.  A New Member Orientation is held as need dictates to acquaint you to the ELCA, to the congregation, and to each other.  We confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and do not re-baptize children or adults.  So no matter where you came from we are happy to have you!  

 

Q:  "When are services held?"

 

A:  Right now, as we wait for COVID-19 to subside, we are worshiping drive-in style in our big parking lot at 9:00 a.m. on Sundays. That's right, our pastor stands outside in the cold and snow and delivers a message with a Biblical emphasis that relates to our lives in Christ today. You'll want to tune your car radio to 88.7 FM to hear the word and song of our worship. Bring along some bread and juice as we celebrate the Lord's Supper right there on each dashboard, with our pastor consecrating the elements with you. We even honk our horns in a rather ironic sharing of the peace. We'd love for you to join us!

 

Q:  "What programs/activities do you have for children?"

 

A:  We have kids too and understand your desire to worship as a family yet give your kids freedom to discover God on their terms.  For now, we send our Sunday School lessons to your home, where you can share activities and stories with your children. Anyone can do this, and the only materials you'll need are God's word and perhaps a few items you already have around the house.  For the teenager in 7th and 8th grade we offer a Confirmation program with Pastor Doug and mission opportunities with our youth group.
